I Hate Trojans

No, that's not me quoting Achilles or Agamemnon or Menelaus or Odysseus from The Iliad. Say rather that I discovered this morning that my computer was infected with Trojan horse malware programs, and I've spent most of the morning doing cleanup and trying to get Mozilla Firefox working again. I've had to clean these up in the past, because my sister shares my computer and has a distressing tendency to click on "free" stuff she sees on the internet, with the predictable consequences. This time, though, I'm not certain whether she caused the problem or I did, since the results of antivirus and antispyware scans showed infections on my side of the computer as well as hers. I'm rather suspicious of a blog entry I saw yesterday that had a link to a porn site. Oh, well.

Good luck, Bob - those things can be truly aggravating.
